FG To Stop Importation Of Security Uniforms
The Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, has announced plans to put an end to the importation of textile materials for producing uniforms by all services under the Ministry of Interior.
Dambazau made the disclosure on Friday when the Chairman of the Northern Governors Forum, Kashim Shettima, led the management team of the New Nigeria Development Company (NNDC) to the Ministry of Interior to seek the Ministry’s support for the revitalization of its textile industry.
The Interior Minister used the occasion to remind the various Heads of Agencies at the meeting of the need to adhere strictly to the executive order on support for local content in public procurement.
He told them to be guided by the presidential order in procuring uniforms and other items captured in the 2018 budget, while hoping that the current effort at reviving the nation’s textile industries will ensure the complete production of uniforms and other accoutrements locally by 2019.
